Closed-form theoretical solutions for steady seepage below a horizontal impervious apron with equal end cutoffs are obtained using Schwarz-Christoffel transformation. The resulting implicit equations involving elliptic integrals are used to obtain various seepage characteristics in nondimensional floor-profile ratios. These ratios are further expressed in the form of design charts and as algebraic equations. The results have been validated by comparing the solutions with the available exact solutions for infinite-depth cases. DOI: 10.1061/(ASCE)HY.1943-7900.0000459.
